In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

A Few Names Before Bed


Junaid - I was particularly interested in this name due to how similar it is to my grandfather Junius' name. Junaid, though, is Arabic, and comes from the Urdu "jund" meaning "soldier". It is pronounced "yun AID". And now I have Carl Jung on my mind and the idea of Jungian theory.

Kacper - Polish form of the Persian name Casper, which means "treasure keeper".

Either Gender

Angamela - Tsonga name meaning "be in an elevated position and govern". This is a name given as a blessing pronouncement. Tsonga is a language spoken in South Africa.
